SPCA Tampa Bay Assisting in Rescue of 45 Cats and Dogs

LARGO, Fla. – SPCA Tampa Bay Assisting in Rescue of 45 Cats and Dogs Largo, Fla.  SPCA Tampa Bay is collaborating with the Louisiana SPCA and animal welfare agencies in Pensacola to transport 45 dogs and cats to Tampa Bay on Friday, September 18. Hurricane Sally’s impact on the Gulf Coast has caused widespread damage and flooding leaving many shelters powerless and without water. SPCA Tampa Bay will be rescuing as many as 30 cats and 15 dogs.

SPCA Tampa Bay’s regional rescue team will meet the Louisiana SPCA team in the Tallahassee area where they will safely transfer the animals to SPCA Tampa Bay. The SPCA team should arrive back at the Largo Shelter by 6 p.m. The cats and dogs were already on the adoption floor and after thorough medical evaluations by SPCA Tampa Bay some of them may be available for adoption as early as Sunday.

To learn more about these rescued animals log on to spcatampabay.org and follow the rescue team’s efforts on our Facebook page at facebook.com/SPCATampaBay.
